Isn’t it fun to keep track of all those wonderful milestones for our children? I will be the first to admit that I have a hard time remembering what month this or that happened in the life of our children. Luckily, I have a beautiful wife who has a steel trap for that type of information.
Audrey experienced a few firsts this week. We are not talking about the first smile, step, word, or even the first rollover. I wish we would be celebrating the first night she slept all the way through. Unfortunately, none of those milestones have been reached. We will keep you posted on all of that.
This week Audrey outgrew her newborn diapers, got her first stuffy nose, and recieved her first boo-boo. Who do you think was responsible for giving Audrey her first owie? It was…(insert drum roll here)…me. I know, very sad…how coudl you do this Dad?. I got home from work and saw that she had made some red spots on her face from her fingernails getting a bit long so I thought it was time for another manly moment for Daddy – a little trim for her nails. So I began to trim her nails as she was sleeping peacefully in my arms. The next thing I know I hear a little whimper and my heart sank…sure enough there was the tiniest bit of blood as I had just barely got her skin. I am sure that in our large family of six this will not ber her last boo-boo, but I also know that those boo boos are going to be inconsequential to the amount of love she gets from her Daddy, Mommy, brothers, and sister.
Audrey is growing up and we are cherishing each moment along the way…even the little boo-boos. I am enjoying the use of this blog to celebrate these little moments in our kids lives. Those of you with kids, have you discovered a good way to cherish and remember all of the precious moments you share with your children?
